‘The Play That Goes Wrong’, a Preview


Jesuit Drama Department

Jesuit’s new production ‘THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG’ premieres on November 3rd.

The Jesuit Drama Program has unveiled its latest Fall production, ‘THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG’. This chaotic comedy premieres on November 3rd, focusing on a theater company that bites off more than they can chew with an ill-prepared show. 

‘THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG’ is “about this theatre company putting on a play called ‘The Murder at Haversham Manor’, and everything just starts to fall apart,” said senior Frankie Mondeaux, student actress in the play.

This production is unique; featuring a specially designed and built set new to Jesuit. Junior Bennett Ptak is the show’s stage manager.

“The [show] is incredibly difficult in the sense that we need to create controlled chaos on stage. The entire set is designed to fall apart, and we have to do it while making it look realistic and funny while also keeping people safe. I’m looking forward to it,” said Ptak.

Students are excited about the new production, and the unique features that are being used in it.

“Jesuit’s theater program is really good. I was in a musical last year and I’m really excited to see what they do for this [production],” said junior Susanna Sevilla.
